On May 19, 2012, the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine (SMFM) issued a new white paper on how to correctly bill for services rendered by nurse practitioners. The white paper discusses options for direct billing, incident-to billing, and shared/split billing. To access the article, members can log into the SMFM website. For those who are not members, there is still a wealth of information that is publicly available on the site regarding maternal fetal billing and coding. Check out the SMFM website’s publications section to view recent articles on advanced maternal age, pregnancy in women with spinal cord injuries, and preterm birth prevention.
